Runaway barge!

The 143-foot barge Brittney Moe is adrift in Shelikof Strait southwest of Kodiak Island after the tug Seahawk lost the tow in heavy weather early Tuesday. The tug experienced a partial loss of steering in the mishap, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The barge is laden with a forklift, a shipping container and a layer of ice. She's in no danger of running aground and plans are in motion for the Seahawk or another tug to recover the craft. USCG photo
